Seems people are continuing to park across from the train station, even though the city never cleared the road to the curb, narrowing the road to one lane and creating backups that now extend down to Roslindale.

The Clumsy Jeweler reported around 9 a.m. on her efforts to get a bus to the train station this morning:

5 full 32's passed since 7:45. Finally got on one. Driver says it will be an hour to Forest Hills.

Kristie Helms reports on her experiences so far toodling around town in her new Mercedes electric vehicle:

Charging hasn’t proven to be an issue - mostly because my employer has two chargers in the garage where I usually park during the day. When I need a boost on the weekend, I can plug into a regular outlet at home. Takes awhile longer, but gets the job done. There are also nearby public chargers at Forest Hills T Stop and at the JP Whole Foods.

Spare Change Guy, the croaky-voiced sex offender who normally whirls around at Tremont and Winter in Downtown Crossing.

Yet, there he was last night, a couple cars behind us, as we waited for our food last night at the Washington Street Burger King. No, he wasn't in a car: He just walked up to the signboard and ordered a coffee. And then waited patiently in line.
